    Were is the best place to install a aux coolant temp sensor for a aftermarket gauge. I believe I read somewhere reading that a good place was on the left side of the engine block. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Better read than where I had it in the crossover plug prior.

    Did you install it in the block drain plug or a different plug and do you have any photos?

    Left side. Pretty sure it takes a 3/8” ratchet. See if you can find the how to thread done by Jomo in the how to section. Only on my phone till morning.

    Isn't the crossover the best place as thats leaving the engine going to the radiator to be cooled again.
